Ukraine Plan

"Poroshenko, European leaders discuss Marshall Plan for Ukraine"

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has announced Ukraine has discussed with the European Union the possibility of developing a new long-term economic support plan similar to a Marshall Plan, a comprehensive U.S. program of support for Europe after World War II. "Today we've discussed the possibility of a new long-term plan for support of Ukraine, which was proposed at the European People's Party summit, a kind of a Marshall Plan for Ukraine, as well as the use of by Ukraine of funds of the EU's external investment plan," Poroshenko said at a press conference after a meeting with President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker on the sidelines of the Ukraine-EU summit in Kyiv on Thursday, July 13. According to the Ukrainian president, Ukraine has an ambitious economic integration plan, which foresees accession to the EU customs union, the Schengen zone, the digital market and the energy union in future. "This is strong impetus to the implementation of economic, social, sectoral and other reforms, the growth of our common trade and investment," Poroshenko stressed.

^ The Ukraine deserves all the help it can receive from the EU, the US, Canada, the UN, etc. They have gone through more in 3 1/2 years than most countries. ^
